Nigeria: CSOs Ask Sultan to Denounce New Kano Emirates

Renaissance Coalition, in collaboration with civil society organisations and other stakeholders in Kano State, have called on the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Abubakar Sa'ad, to denounce the creation of additional emirates in Kano.

The coalition, in a statement yesterday by Abdullahi Baffa Yola, alleged that the new four emirates were created without due process.

"We are alarmed by the current administration's increasing disregard for due process, exhibiting a culture of impunity; ignoring court orders; while people who have tried to broker peace suffered all sorts of indignities, threats and intimidation," it stated.
